HOW WE MET
JUNE 8, 2015
We are so thankful that God brought us together!
We met 2 years ago in June 2013 at a prayer meeting at UC Davis. We quickly became best friends. All it took was one conversation to realize that we were meant to run together. From then, we labored together on college campuses and in the prayer movement, not only in NorCal but throughout the West Coast -even going on a national mobilization tour together!
There was no question from the beginning that our personalities meshed, and that we had such similar passion for Jesus and His purposes. However, it was all surrendered to the Lord, putting His Kingdom first. In the winter of 2014, through much prayer and counsel (and prodding from friends), I (David) confessed my feelings to Audry and was overjoyed to find them mutual. We began courting in early 2015!

MARCH 25, 2015
All throughout the month of March, I (David) had been planning, plotting, and scheming to propose to Audry at the perfect place and time. I was working on a custom ring with my friends from Catalyst Love, and miraculously got the ring two days before we left for our California for Christ Tour.
On March 25, we had been given a day off to get refreshed before the tour. I knew I had to seize this moment. I asked Audry to take the day off with me in Malibu (important to the story later!!). We began with a great beach side dinner, timing our beach escapade to the sunset.
Unknown to Audry, I had asked her college friend Sarah Hutchinson to help set up a surprise (blankets and candles) on the beach, along with asking our mutual friend David Parks to take pictures. We drove down to the beach just as the sun was setting.
At the beach, I asked Audry to close her eyes as I led her (she had no idea!!) to the blanket-glory set-up. The best part: this beach was the place where she had prayed for her future husband while she was a student at Pepperdine! She had no idea that she was going to get proposed to at the very same place!
Once we got to the place, I began to tell her how much I appreciated her. I was so nervous I forgot all the great lines that I had planned, but managed to ask the question. She said yes! It was such a beautiful and tender moment of God's faithfulness to her prayers in that very place and to the longings of our hearts.
